SAHARANEWS – There is a protest currently ongoing outside the National Secretariat of the Nigerian Bar Association in Abuja. Members of the Nigeria Bar Association, Civil Society Organisation of Nigeria and the opposition parties are currently protesting the removal of Justice Walter Onnoghen as the Chief Justice of Nigeria and the appointment of Justice Tanko Muhammad as the acting CJN.
The protesters carried placards with inscriptions like “Tanko Mohammed, stop parading yourself as CJN;” “NBA must act now by ordering lawyers to down tool;” “Amaechi, El-Rufai, Akpabio, Malami, APC: brains behind Onnoghen’s trial;” “NJC must reconvene now and expel Justice Tanko Mohammed,”. See more photos from the protest below.
